This diverse panel takes up critical strands of thought from research on current suburbanization with case studies from Australia, Canada and Germany. This builds largely on work done around a long term global comparative research program on Global Suburbanisms: Governance, Land and Infrastructure in the 21st Century. The panel starts from the assumption that suburbia is here to stay as a phenomenon that has to be subject to critical social science research and policy action. This leads to the premise that we now live in a postsuburban world in which processes of change in the urban periphery are not ones commencing but rather are being transformed and redirected as we are living in what can be called Global Postsuburbia.
